Subject: RE: error when compiling the latest version of JtR bleeding on Centos 6 and 7

Problem resoled!  

Your prompting below made me think this problem might have something to do with these files being a vmware share, since my host machine is windows.   

I copied the JtR files from the vmware share to the local file system.  Then did a make clean, configure, and make. 

This time it worked!!!

So, lesson learned:  Don't try to compile JtR from a vmware share, when cross platform is involved.

Thanks

The "cp -pR" line that fails should normally be "ln -s" and that's why there is no path involved.  Apparently the (standard parts of) configure script changed it to "cp -pR"... Are you somehow building on a filesystem that doesn't support symlinks?

This system supports symlinks
